A peaceful, lazy evening…

This photo was taken yesterday around 7:30pm from the wharf behind our boathouse on Bayou Lafourche in Valentine, South Louisiana. I was only taking a picture of Sentry and did not realize all that I had captured until I looked at the photo. It was quiet and peaceful last evening; the water was calm, and a gentle breeze was blowing. Sentry is fascinated by the microscopic bugs that skim across the glassy smooth water. Our dog enjoys…

Happy Easter and a Recap of Life

  Happy Easter! For Catholics, it’s been a week of activities; Palm Sunday, Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Vigil Saturday night.

Lenten reflections along the bayou

I was bound and determined today to sit down and just write. It’s something I’ve been feeling the need to do and not having the time to do. It’s Lent for anyone who is Catholic and a time of reflection; at least that seems to be the theme of the homilies at church these days.

He didn’t seem to know who I was. He still looked well and I…
